With the All-Star Game voting wrapping up soon, we have five Texas Rangers that are completely worth a vote by the fans. Check out these players as you decide who should represent the American League in 2014.
Choo isn't having the greatest season with the Texas Rangers, but he's doing his best to get on base. His .384 on-base percentage is a reflection of that and it's the 15th best in the league. So while his other numbers may not be eye popping, his ability to get on base and start off the All-Star game with a walk could really get things moving for the American League.
Soria is currently sitting at 15 saves on the season, which is tied for fifth best in the American League. Soria has performed as advertised in his second season as a Ranger. His dominating 2014 season would be welcomed on the All-Star team, preferably as a setup man for the big game.
An early stint on the disabled list hasn't slowed down Beltre. Through 59 games so far this season, Beltre is hitting .307 with eight home runs and 35 RBIs. A constant threat to go deep in a game, Beltre would slot perfectly in a fifth or sixth spot in the All-Star Game lineup.
I remember a few years ago, when it looked as if Alex Rios was heading toward a downward trend in his career. Now in 2014, he's worthy of an All-Star bid. Rios is hitting .319 with three home runs and 33 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. The man who seems like he can do it all, Rios can help a team in every category. He's exactly the type of player every team would love to have.
Darvish continues to dominate hitters across the American League. Sporting a 2.39 ERA with 109 strikeouts in 90.1 innings, Darvish is completely capable of starting the All-Star Game. If Darvish can keep this up, he has so many more All-Star Games to look forward too.
